Why putting crisp packs in mail boxes as an act of protest isn't as effective as you'd think

We all love a cheeky packet of salt and vinegar. But, what happens to the packaging once we’ve wolfed down those crisps? 

In the case of Walkers crisps, the packaging can’t be recycled, and activists have taken to posting the empty packets back to the manufacturer. But, the Post Office has intervened, urging campaigners not to post crisp packets into red pillar boxes. 

Walkers Crisps sparked outrage in July by stating its packaging will be “recyclable, compostable or biodegradable” by 2025. 

We’re working tirelessly to tackle waste challenges and have committed to 100% recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging by 2025.
